Parking

In Cold Ashton, we need to take care of the local residents and not strangulate their small village, whilst taking care not to interfere with heavy and fast traffic on the A46. There is some hard-standing by the turn-off into Greenway Lane, but as space is really tight here, please park with great consideration, to allow us to squeeze as many cars in as possible. There is a fair bit of grass around the junction - get well off the A46 - 4x4s will do well here!

 

Do not park in Greenway Lane. Take great care on the grass verges of the A46. I have seen some farcical parking here before in view of the danger to yourselves and to A46 traffic. This is not a good location to leave cars for subsequent collection, so please get someone else to drive your car onwards. The grass verge of the small road running North from the finish of Stage 9 will accomodate about 20 cars.

 

Ideally you will get here in plenty of time and drive to the pub on the A420 (250m East of the A420 / A46 roundabout) where there is a sizeable car park, and jog through the pretty village to and from the finish. This is the safest, easiest and most considerate option.
